by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)
Comments - Handsome Kunichika design featuring four shaped insets with portraits and a river view. The top fan-shaped inset shows a samurai beneath a cherry tree as petals drift down through the night sky. A sumo wrestler is shown below at right, with a circular inset at left offering a lovely river view. Below, a beauty wearing an embossing white kimono tucked into red pants reads a poem slip. The dark green background features a lovely burnished floral pattern. An attractive and unusual design.
